One of the oldest of the European toy breeds, the Maltese has been a lap dog to royalty for centuries. This all-white dog has silky hair instead of fur, often making it more tolerable for those who are allergic. Maltese love to be pampered, cuddled and held, and typically form strong attachments. They are gentle and affectionate, and are easy to train, especially when training is started early. Maltese have a medium energy level and do well indoors or in Small Living Spaces. This breed is known to be by their owners’ sides at all times, and is sure to charm anyone they meet!
Pekingese are independent, bold dogs that love to be near people. Although they are small in size, these little lion-dogs have big-dog personalities. An ancient breed, the Pekingese originated in China, where they were sacred companions to royalty. Pekingese have short legs, flat faces and long, thick coats, and are affectionate and warm towards their families. Due to their low activity level, Pekingese make excellent apartment dogs.
